      It is echoed continually in our culture. You see it television and hear it on the radio. You read about it on the internet and in print media. They all shout from the roof tops that in order for you to attain a complete and fulfilling life, you must learn to love yourself. In order for you to love someone else, you must learn to love yourself first.

What exactly does this phrase mean and how do you accomplish it? You hear it at recovery meetings and other self-help groups. This expression seems to have lost its message. Does loving yourself mean becoming self-centered and conceited? Does it mean that you pursue your goals no matter who gets hurt along your journey? Does loving yourself have anything to do with the acquisition of material items? How do you know if you are in the state of loving yourself or not? Do you feel euphoric when you love yourself? Do you have the combined strength of superman and superwoman?

In my opinion to love yourself is not good because it is make a bad habits such as selfishness and other bad habits either its make anybody go and do bad things just to satisfy himself 

If u mean trust yourself it is agood thing which make person more strong and he can resist the difficulties 

you have to love yourself doesn't necessary mean you'r solvish or arogant, it's important to value the human side ant think about it before any leap, to keep your conscience satisfied, cuz somoene who loves correctly himself cares about his conscience and then he could'nt hurt, could understand, could love could forgive, and could be trusted.

hi Zack,

really you gave very nice reply , you gave how: if we love ourselves we can love and give love .

thank you so mutch

Self cofidence is in the result of loveing urself besides believeing in urself . So , I don' think that it is
so bad . However , every thing is good but if it's abundant . This matter must not go over its limit coz if it does , it will change into an unfavorable habit .

hi O.K,

yes you are right , by giving chance to ourselves , means that we are in the good way.

thank you for the nice comment.

hello angel,

well , we have to love ourselves but don't go over limites .

right , i like moderation in all things.

thank you angel.

As per my opinion, to love yourself empowers yourself to make yourself positive, friendly and self motivated.  For getting any type of success in our life, we have to love ourself.  If we love ourself, we can love others also and in return we get love from others which finally result in a popular and happy life living.

Self loving person can face any types of challenge and be happy in his life in spite of situation goes worse.

hi cool boy ,

yeah , if we love ourselves in the right way we can be positive persons .

thank you so mutch for the nice comment

Hello Hafida
Nice topic!
In my opinion, a successful person always loves himself and respect all things which God has given to him.
There are some ways for it, like the miracle of a mirror to see our beauties.

thank you dear sahar ,

that's what i would to say : when you love yourself you can give love to others and that's what can make you very successful person .

nice reply sister
